United Arab Emirates (UAE) has supported the move taken by Saudi Arabiain expelling its Canadian envoy over ‘interference’ in the Kingdom’s domestic affairs.

“The UAE stands in solidarity with Riyadh in the confrontation ofany foreign interference that may undermine its sovereignty,” said a statement issued by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia announced the expulsion of the Canadian Ambassador over its ‘interference’ in domestic affairs and has said that it is freezing all trade ties with Ottawa. It has also recalled its own ambassador from Canada.
